# Open Source Routing Machine (OSRM)

Project OSRM


The Open Source Routing Machine, also known as OSRM, is a sophisticated routing engine that uses OpenStreetMap data to deliver high-performance results. With the help of this software, users can easily navigate through mapped territories with utmost precision and speed. The system has been expertly engineered to handle complex routing tasks swiftly and accurately.

One of its key features includes an HTTP API which allows developers to integrate OSRM's high-speed routing technology into their own applications. Whether it's a delivery app or a ride-sharing service, the HTTP API ensures seamless integration for optimal performance.

Another distinctive feature of OSRM is its C++ library interface. This makes it possible for developers to directly interact with the routing engine in the language they are most comfortable with. Moreover, OSRM comes with a Node.js wrapper which provides JavaScript developers with easy access to the powerful routing capabilities offered by this software.

With 5618 GitHub stars and the latest commit on 2023-07-18 the project looks healthy.
